it was ok
bookshelves: memoir, ideological-screed, non-fiction
Read in January, 1999

Another socialist assault on evil capitalism. Yeah, life is difficult and rarely is it fair but persistence, imagination, and thrift will nearly always help us overcome the privation of low wages and a gritty existence. I enjoyed Ms. Ehrenreich's prose but didn't often agree with her conclusions.
